After getting their other two second round picks from last years draft - Tyler Pitlick and Curtis Hamilton - signed to entry level deals the Oilers today closed the loop and got a deal done with Martin Marincin as well. Marincin, who is 6'5", scored 14 goals and 42 assists this season in his first year with the Prince George Cougars of the WHL. Very good numbers but his production slowed significantly in the latter stages of the season. To go with those offensive numbers Marcinin also brings a mean streak that was on full display at the World Juniors this year.

Lowetide took a look at Marincin's season splits here, and his though his NHLE dropped off significantly, he still ranks among the best offensive prospects the Oilers have on the back end.

Marincin's signing clouds the picture in Oklahoma City next season.  With youngsters Alex Plante, Taylor Chorney, Taylor Fedun, Kevin Montgomery and Colten Teubert already in the fold, and Brandon Davidson trying to make the team, the blueline is crowded without the couple of veteran defenders in addition to Bryan Helmer the Barons will surely sign.  Of the Oilers significant defensive prospects, only Jeremie Blain remains unsigned.  

Bruce had a chance to talk to Marincin earlier this year at the Cult of Hockey about the differences between the WHL and Slovakia as well as that play at the World Juniors.
